for by the payroll tax. that's called -- a kind of single payer. but the republicans for years have been saying -- no we don't want it that way. we want private insurers. we want a profit motive the we want a market. and indeed if you look back, historically, richard mixston came up with a proposal that was very, very close to the affordable care act. democrats didn't like it. it wasn't close enough to social security and medicare. mitt romney, the reason the president is -- in massachusetts is because obama care was modeled exactly after romney care in massachusetts. including the individual man date, which mitt romney after he signed that into law and was asked where did the mandate come from. he said an idea from the heritage foundation. and i heard from it through newt gingrich. that's where -- that's where this comes, this comes from. so for republicans now to turn around and say, oh, we think this is just awful. we don't like any of this. well it its beyond ironic. it is sort of -- tragic and combic com comic. >> secretary sebelius -- >> the president made it clear. and our policy was put
, in a balanced way. we've heard from senators about the need to modernize the tax code and move toward real tax reform. while the committee can't get it done. we can move in that direction in a substantial way. making a modest cut of only 5% of the trillion dollars a year we spend through the tax code would make huge dent in the deficit. lastly, we have to don't make some reduction in direct spending. although i know that's the area taken the hardest hit. i'll insist on doing in a way that put a circle of production around around the most vulnerable and honoring our promises to seniors, veterans, and about to retirement to protect them from cuts. chairman rhode island i know, chairman muir ray. i'm glad we have come together. we need focus not on the area of disagreement but priority we share. reducing the deficit, and ensuring our long-term prosperity. thank you. >> thank you. i've learn something. i know, you refer to yourself as delaware begans. senator ayotte. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to thank you and thank chairman murray for your leadership and everyone at the table who is comi
. that's number one. number two, we need tax reform, in my view, tax reform that brings down the top corporate rates to something more closely aligned with every other developed nation in the world, and at the same time that we're doing that to generate some revenues for deficit reduction, to match what we're doing on the spending side. if you think about it, as the senator from ohio knows, the senator from west virginia knows, tax expenditures, tax breaks, tax credits, tax deductions, tax loopholes, tax gap adds up over the next ten years to anywhere from $10 trillion to $15 trillion. we're going to spend more money out of the treasury for tax expenditures than we're going to spend in all our appropriations bills combined. if we could capture 5% of $12 trillion over ten years for deficit reduction, that's $600 billion. if we could match that in like a bowles-simpson number, we could do about another $2 billion on deficit reduction on top of what we've already done. is that a grand compromise that i want and i think the senator from ohio wants and i know the senator from west virgini
the pike? how many taxes are in there? nice that it is covering people, but when will it -- what is it going to cost us? i think that americans really want to know and it is not out there in black-and-white. you should be able to look and see. there are a lot of important things that have been done wrong. the president has lied to us. thank you. host: a little bit more about the book "double down." it is just coming out. even after obama named hillary clinton as secretary of state, finding their wounds, he could barely endure spending time with the clinton. he rarely contacted his democratic predecessor in the years after taking office. after midterm losses for his party, the incumbent and his inner circle realized that they still needed the popular mr. clinton. they golfed together in 2011 in an effort to get closer together. they did not even finish 18 holes. r. obama succinctly expressed his view of mr. clinton saying that he liked him in doses. to thema, who is known test campaign donor nations said that he could not name his top five vendors. he says he has no idea. after me

is that over 10% of america's largest companies pay zero percent tax rate. i would like to know where the big target shooter stands on that. does he think that's fair for average americans? that 10 percent of meramerica's largest companies pay zero percent? never answers those kinds of questions because the conservative media protects those folks. cruz cares about protecting his big money corporate interests, and he's always at work. he wants those folks to put him in office. and you know what, as of late, there is no better example than his most recent stunt. pay attention, folks. ted cruz is blocking president obama's nominee for chairman of the federal communications commission. now, the president has nominated ex tell com industry lobbyist tom wheeler. good guy. wants him to head up the fcc. now, of course, there are five seats on the federal communications commission, and three of them are vacant. and, of course, they're looking for some good democrats, because that's how it works when you have a democratic president. wheeler is a democrat, and republicans are worried that he might, wait
but they will have some new options for those who want to cover their employment and new tax credit possibilities. for large employers, 96% already cover their employees. the penalty that you're constituents referred to is not a penalty that is imposed in 2014, it is being discussed with businesses about what kind of information is exchanged and it will take place -- >> i thank you. he's going to use the gavel on me if you don't hush. i yield back my time. >> how much time -- the chair would recognize the gentle lady from california, miss eshoo. >> welcome, madam secretary. you're a distinguished woman, you have distinguished yourself and your state, the offices that you've held and now working for the american people and i salute you for it. i want to really congratulate my republican pals for being absolutely 1,000% consistent. you love what's wrong with the web site and you detest what's working in the affordable care act, and i think that that is on full display here. but let's get back to the web site because that's what the hearing is about. it's my understanding that november 31st is the -
. >> will he cut taxes. >> he wanted to cut taxes, hasn't been able to get that through the legislature. the interesting part is he's perceived as very moderate, where you could describe him as moderate because he's a more -- he's not an -- he's a get things done, cut the best deal conservative and he has had to do that in a blue state. i think this is the fascinating test. when he's in iowa, what are the rand pauls and ted cruzes and rick santorum say? does mitt romney's blessing help or hurt? >> he's perceived as a moderate because he embraced the president of the united states on the eve of the 2012 election after super storm sandy. >> the man who by the way made sure that his state got funneled millions of dollars and stood by him when his state was in need. >> other republicans hated him for that. >> they did, but did his embrace, did the embrace mean anything to mitt romney in the end? absolutely not. >> if you speak to some romney folks, they were irritated by it. >> they were irritated by it but did it cause him the election? no, it didn't. this is a personal brand this man has.
and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools rather than defending this law. greg abott immediately filed an appeal to today's ruling. joining me now, msnbc and planned parenthood in houston, texas, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. this must have been quiet a win down there today. >> yes, lawrence, thank you. this ruling is a victory for our parents. it's a ruling for women. it sends a clear signal across 50 states. it is unconstitutional for politicians to pass laws that take away the private personal health care decisions that women make in consultation with their physician. >> melanie, i just want to check one thing. the 30 mile rule of being knocked out, does that mean there won't be any facilities that will have to close as a result of any other provisions in this law? >> well, that remains to be seen. but what this does mean is that women across the state will have access to abortion care preserved for them. >> crystal, here is a george w. bush judge looking at what this lu legisla

are not going to pay for the insurance in other states. we pay money for our federal taxes, we're going to get that back. you look at states like texas and texas is going to have all those texans paying for the insurance in california or in michigan? i don't think so. it's a great 2014 issue for both congress and for democrats running for governor. >> that's not the case. texas is not expanding their medicaid rolls. they're not giving them away because they're not expanding the rolls which is care cost for them, and you know the obama care only pays the bills for a short period of time. 90% but they don't pay the whole thing. again, you're asking people to expand the role of government, and in texas, they don't want to do that. they want to have private sectose sectors -- >> so they'll give those away. the texans pay those taxes. >> those tax dollars are not paying for obama care. >> let's not just talk about the expansion of medicaid, though. i think it's very easy to lose me and a lot of our viewers here. keep it to the big question, which is, how did this get botched and what are the conseq
the case like the grimes campaign did, a state that takes in more federal money than it pays back in taxes damaged kentuckyians. statewide you can run that way. but these house districts it's hard to sell that story. >> david ignatius people talk about the republican party. there's so many different republican parties. i talk about, you got the governors. and the success of the governors that they've had. then you got basically the senate wing of the republican party and then the house wing of the republican party. and what works for one definitely doesn't work for the other and certainly what works for some house members actually undermines presidential candidates who have any, any dream of being able to compete with hillary clinton. >> we'll see if the chris christie wing of the party, the party that will talk about how to govern and make a big state like new jersey work if that gets traction. one of the things i've been following the last few weeks is the backlash in some hard line republican house tea party districts against those tea party hard liners. for example, justin amosh from m

's also been involved in property tax fights in kansas, ohio, and texas. the news comes -- this news comes just weeks after "the times" reported the kochs were, quote, deeply involved with groups that plotted the government shutdown. and gave millions to another group that made the creepy uncle sam ads. trying to scare people not to get health insurance. here's how they got into the halloween spirit. ♪ >> now the fear campaign could be coming to your local town. and just like last year, the fight is on. joining me now are krystal ball and james peterson. thank you both for being here. >> thanks for having us, rev. >> krystal, a koch-backed tea party group getting involved in iowa city council race. what's the strategy here? >> the kochs have always been willing to push their ideologies at all levels. these are the guys also behind the american legislative exchange council. and they pushed their agenda through model legislation that was anti-worker and pro-big business at the state level across the country. so this is something they've been doing in different ways across the country. i th
, and backed the mayor who raised taxes to improve schools. michael? >> i think the governor is dead on. and i'm very happy and rather proud to hear him put that out on the table. i think the party should talk more about the poor in the context of our policies and the things that we believe will help lift the poor. you know, i ask the questions when i give speeches, how many got up today and said all i want to be is poor. and no one raises their hands. the poor doesn't get up thinking that. i think our party is uniquely poised to do that. and i think the leadership of guys like kasich and others will help frame that argument into the future. if given the opportunity. and they have that sister soldier moment when they say to the rank and file, this is the way forward. not over there in the woods and in the trees, but this way talking about poor and opportunity and all that. >> looks to me like the crazy right is now fighting the reasonable right. as well as the left. >> yeah. >> anyway, thank you michael steele. thank you governor ed rendell. >>> up next, the hit tv show "homeland" now for the
at those options and then go and check what your qualification might be for tax credits, and you might discover as a significant portion of this 5% will discover that you're actually going to pay less come january for better coverage than what you're paying now for far worse coverage. there was a story the other morning that highlighted this phenomenon, the sending of letters, that featured a woman in florida who was worried because she could not continue coverage under her existing plan. and as reported, it made it sound like she had a plan and she wanted to keep it, but she couldn't. and the reason for that would be that this is a new plan that had been created since the affordable care act passed or that she dropped coverage and reinstated it, again, after the affordable care act pass ad. but what the report didn't say is that her plan didn't cover her for hospital visits. that her plan is basically one of the most basic kinds of plans available that provide almost no security. and what we stipulate, that the affordable care act as campaigned on by the president, as, you know, the h

in proposing ensuring that our tax laws is generous to a foreign pension, as it would be to a domestic pension, so that is one important area. some of it is all of us working together because it is not just the supply of capital. it is making sure at the state and local government level that people can figure out ways to create a steady certain revenue stream that is what these potential foreign investors and others would be interested in. again, i think it is, as bill is saying, not limiting ourselves to a narrow view of infrastructure. to give you a small example, something that would affect a lot of different countries is the president is insuring an initiative that will happen, because it is regulatory, to the fcc, to ensure that every school in our country has enough high- speed broadband that every child who sits at their desk with an individualized learning device. that is an infrastructure that if you put that in place him a bill is just saying what is a new exciting thing out there? if that is out there, the new exciting thing may an entire industry of lower-cost educational devices t

plans it's tough to do that when you don't have the website to survey those new plans. the average tax subsidy you can get to buy this type of insurance is about $2700 which can offset some of this increased cost. that might lessen the blow to some people except they don't know that because they can't get to the website that tells them this is the savings they are allowed to have. there's a whole host of problems compounding one another for the administration. this can change over time but at this moment you have the sense that, you know, this is just one great mess that administration has to figure out a way to deal with. >> encourage everyone to read lisa's report. she and her team put together a lot of news. another big story not only allies upset over the agency's wiretapping, senator diane feinstein is calling for a full review of the mass data collection at home and abroad. the california democrat who chairs the senate intelligence committee said she's opposed to spying on u.s. allies. according to senator feinstein congress has not been adequately kept in the loop. feinstein sai
in sales and pay no sales tax. pretty good deal. we passed it rear here, rightfully so, a barb bill. the house won't take this up. it's too bad. so on these and other issues it's time for reasonable republicans to raise their voice here in the senate and, of course, in the house of representatives. there have been a troubling trend over the last three years, i've been troubled to watch these so-called mainstream republicans be marginalized by members of their own party. remember, it's not the marginal people that are being marginalized, it's mainstream republicans. even more troubling, moderate republicans have been complicit in allowing this disturbing trend to continue. it's no surprise when tea party extremists forced our economy to the brink of disaster or shut down the government for the sake of ideological stunts. we saw what happened. but we weren't surprised that the tea party did this. but i was surprised that sensible, mainstream republicans didn't speak up and speak up sooner. and that many didn't speak up at all in defense of reason and responsibility. think about that,
the bill you know i grew genuinely preoccupied with the dangers of bear at tax when hiking in the eastern woods. berries in the eastern united states don't attack very often but with respect to any individual italy has to happen once. i tried most genuinely a little concerned about the dangers and gratified to discover after the book came out that lots and lots of people all over north america share these concerns because i got letters from people on how to avoid bear attacks when hiking and the basic advice used to be go hiking with someone who can't run as fast as you can. there was one letter i got from a lady in new hampshire that pleased me and she told me when you are hiking out west in grizzly bear country and grizzly bears are very dangerous creatures, you should do wherever you go, first of all you should wear a little belt on your clothing because this alerts the bury your coming and you don't take them by surprise and a second thing they tell you you should do everywhere you go is look out on the ground in front of you for grizzly bear dunk and the way you can recognize it is i
